first_imgAirAsia Group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes unveiled his book – Flying High – at Marini’s On 57 in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. The man himself said his memoir reflects on his journey from a young boy growing up in Malaysia, and a homesick British boarding school student, to his time at Warner Music and finally as AirAsia chief, and is ‘a story about the power of dreams.’ “When I first started AirAsia with Datuk Kamarudin, everyone thought we were crazy. They said we had no business running an airline and it wouldn’t work. If we had listened to them, we would have given up before we even started and this book wouldn’t exist,” he recalled at the launch.“This book is proof that dreams do come true, and I hope it will encourage others to pursue their true passion. Believe the unbelievable, dream the impossible and never take no for an answer. Even if you fail, it doesn’t matter because at least you’ve tried and you can do it again, so trust in your gut feeling, don’t listen to anyone else’s advice and go ahead – write your own incredible story.”If you want to know what drives Tony Fernandes, and the moments that shaped him – including a chance encounter with Virgin Group founder, Sir Richard Branson, that eventually led to Fernandes’ first job out of university –grab a copy of Flying High.Retailing at RM86.95 (inclusive of GST), Flying High is available now at all major bookstores, on board AirAsia flights, and on bigdutyfree.com from 6 November 2017.last_img read more
